Faulk still hoping to hear from Patriots
Kevin Faulk says he is waiting, hoping and praying for the chance to rejoin the New England Patriots for one more season.
Faulk, a free agent, told the Boston Herald he wants to come back to the organization to play a 14th NFL season, but thus far, the Patriots have not indicated that they will oblige him.
“If I had my way, I’d want them to call right now,” Faulk said. “Obviously, once the season starts, (the window of opportunity) is going to diminish even more. It is going to gradually happen. I’m just waiting, trying to be patient. That’s about it.”
Faulk understands that the Patriots might not call at all, given that the NFL is often a cold business, and he isn't bitter over that.
“One of the things I’ve learned over the years, especially being here, it’s a business,” Faulk said. “And one of the things that they do well over here is take care of business, on the field, off the field, regarding anything. That’s what they do. I was always told, ‘Control what you can control.’ I can only control what Kevin Faulk does. I can’t control what decisions they make or what they’re going to do.
“You can’t take it personal. They’ve been successful doing this for a long time. What would me getting mad, pissed off, frustrated about it do? Nothing at all.”
